For her site-specific installation at Jersey City Museum, Priscila de Carvalho creates a work that combines various media including acrylic, vinyl, permanent marker, pencil, photo collage and three dimensional objects adhered to the wall. In her imagery and three-dimensional work, Ms. De Carvalho creates fantastic worlds in which colors, forms and elements of fantasy all meld together. The work combines the influence of Pop Art, Spanish informalism, the monumentality of mural painting, and a reverence for architectural forms. With these varied sources, the artist overlays a complex variety of objects and shapes together, creating a frenetic, laden, urban landscape. She is perhaps most inspired by the ever-expanding and sprawling urban growth in the cities of her native Brazil. Revealing the sense of a huge population constantly on the move, her installations are marked by intense colors and the lines of ever-present winding streets and stairways.
